Maximise the impact of mock exams….and save yourself hours of marking time

  • Whether you have already done Mock exams or are getting ready for them, do these now:
    • Set pupils a specific set of revision activities – aim for 7 or more
    • Tell pupils that they can do free revision focused on their areas of insecure learning – just search from the Activities tab
  • Set up your Classroom Intervention Groups in minutes  and set them differentiated work to complete for the mock exams (or targeted catch-up afterwards).
